Yeah that's a bit more severe than when I posted it the first time. But what does that accomplish other than personal vindication (and self-indulgence)? At least when we complain here our majority opinion is viewable to the public so that we can have an impact on price levels. If we were all clamoring to buy a synth at a given price, that'd set the price. if we don't buy, prices come down.
All I'm saying is the jag wads that are driving prices up are either too dumb or don't care to look at a posting like that, so it either makes you laugh, or is irritating but serves no purpose other than the emotion it illicits.

Ha I'm done now. I just felt the need to speak because of all these ridiculous listings that are supposedly made better by an even more ridiculous listing. .....and idc if it was you space6oy!

It was a $200 BIN & it includes the box and everything + looks to be in good condition. I thought I bought it, but it turns out it added it to the stupid new eBay cart. :cry:
